UK - Unions aim to secure best deal for National Grid workers - October 23, 2009

The three main unions in the National Grid energy company - Unite, UNISON and GMB - have conceded that the planned closure of the company's Newcastle site will go ahead in 2010 with many of the jobs being moved to India. The unions ran a joint campaign focusing on the massive profits being made by the company but they are now shifting their focus to negotiating the best severance packages for their members (See also Collective Bargaining News July-August 2009).
